To the Honorable Larry Waters, Mayor of Sevier County, and to the honorable members of the Sevier County Commission:

Calls have gone out across the country for Commissioner Warren Hurst to resign over his racist and homophobic comments. While that decision is in his hands, we call on you to censure him by resolution of the Sevier County Commission and to update the employment non-discrimination policy of Sevier County Government to protect county employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.  We urge you to make this policy change by executive order immediately, to be followed by a confirming ordinance or resolution of the County Commission.

    Demented Donnie might not be gay. Nevertheless, Cadet Bonespurs is the worst president and the biggest embarrassment to the United States. I haven’t heard anything from you in the regard.

    I wonder: Maybe we might initiate a program of Homophobe Conversion Therapy on such individuals?

    As a resident of this county I find his rant disgusting. We are a community that relies on tourist dollars. For a city official to spew his hatred for the whole country to see can not be tolerated.
